Otucan 69%

Pure Venezuelan - Dark Chocolate

14 years after the launch of the Grand Cru de Terroir ARAGUANI, Valrhona now creates a second exceptional Grand Cru from Venezuela: OTUCAN.

In the western region of the country, OTUCAN cocoa beans were discovered in a protected and isolated region between the Andes Mountains and the Caribbean Sea, where they were cultivated under the canopy of an old growth forest that has remained unchanged for generations. Otucan has a soft and pleasant bitterness, with hints of green banana, hazelnut, and floral notes. The couverture pairs wonderfully with a wide range of flavors, from fruits and nuts to honey flavors and peppery spices.
